Cincinnati Enquirer Coaches' Poll
With a week remaining in their regular season schedules, both girl's and boy's CMAC Regular Season Champions clinched a spot atop the conference.
For the ladies, Shroder High School and Taft High school both finished 9-1 in conference play, as they both beat each other on the road. This is the second time in the past 4 seasons that we've seen Co-Champs in the CMAC! Both teams played hard and had great seasons. Let's look for these girl's to make noise in the OHSAA state playoffs as the sectional rounds of the tournament begin this Thursday!
For the men, Hughes has clinched the regular season CMAC title and they have an opportunity to complete their spectacular season with an unblemished record this Friday against Shroder. Coach Wyant has coached his guys to a tremendous year and the Big Red have high aspirations for tournament play this year.
As we near the end of the 2016-2017 basketball season, the CMAC has played great, competitive basketball to this point. Look for that trend to continue this Friday as Woodward takes on Western Hills in this week's CMAC Game of the Week!
Woodward (13-7, 4-4) has battled through a tough schedule to get to where they are now. Will Coker (SR) has been a huge part of the Bulldogs success on the court this year. The CMAC football star averages over 17 points per game and plays tough perimeter defense that makes it tough for opposing guards to make an impact on the game. If you do get past Coker, Terry Durham (JR) controls the paint averaging more than 8 boards, 2 steals, and a block per contest to compliment his 17 points per game. Completing the Bulldogs trio is Lonnie Berry (SR), who missed the first half of the season, but has played a dominant role in Woodward's offense since returning. Berry averages 19 points per game and has been an aggressive piece for Coach Paul McMillan's team.
Western Hills (5-14, 0-8) is still looking for their first CMAC win in Head Coach EJ Black's first season. With that being said, Coach Black has the culture and commitment moving upwards for the Mustangs as they look to finish this season on a positive note. The Mustangs are led by Tyrell Anderson (SR) who comes into the game averaging a double-double with 15 points and 13 boards per contest. Evan Walker (SR) is an important piece for the Mustangs as he averages 17.4 points per game, putting him in the CMAC top 5 for that statistic. Finally, freshman guard Jeremi Cauley is a magician on defense as he averages 3 steals per game. Coach Black is excited to have him for 3 more years and looks for Cauley to be an important part of the Mustangs moving forward.
